Chilled Avocado and Cucumber Soup

This recipe sounded like an interesting concept, but I didn't really think it turned out as good as it sounded. I don't have cold soup much, so it might be that I am not used to having soup this way.

This recipe is from Martha Stewart.

-1 cucumber, peeled and diced
-1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and diced
-1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
-1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
-1 scallion, chopped
-1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
-1 cup plain yogurt
-1 cup cold water
-salt and pepper

Mix all the ingredients in a blender. Let it sit in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.

I thought the consistency on this was a little odd, it was almost like whipped cream. We blended it a lot, and that may have had to do with it. It did taste a lot like it sounded it would though, there was a pretty even mix of cucumber and avocado flavor.
